Non proportional zoom?

Does Rhino have this feature? Under a different name, perhaps?

It’s amazing for fixing wonky curves and surfaces because you can see things you normally can’t…

not really, but in this case maybe it could help to use two point perspective, rotating the camera overhead then stretches it heavily apart. you can help with changing the focal length additionally.

Hello- I made a hackeroo for this some time ago - it is a display mode setting in Rhino but to some extent it can be scripted.

In this thing, you first pick an existing display mode to copy and the mode is copied as ‘StretchView’. Once that mode exists, you run the script to set a rectangle on the VP that has the aspect ratio that you want the view compression to use. You can then toggle in and out of the mode as with normal display modes, or run it again to get a different aspect.

StretchView.py (3.0 KB)

To use the Python script use RunPythonScript, or a macro:

_-RunPythonScript "Full path to py file inside double-quotes"

-Pascal
